There are lots of different paint sealant sealants available however one of the best is called Zaino. It would take about a day to do the job properly.
Zaino also do excellent car waxes & polishes but it's a nightmare to get a hold of in the UK. The S2000 brigade love this stuff.
Paint sealents can be confused though... as part of my car preperation I use a paint sealent (Poorboys EX-P) but it is no like a Superguard etc that can be purchased from a car dealer.
